I won't be there to see it as I am coming off a 3 Day Deschutes Guided Trip, but this movie has been getting great reviews from those that have seen it.
The Film – Where the Yellowstone Goes
Where the Yellowstone Goes follows a 30-day drift boat journey down the longest “undammed” river in the lower 48. Intimate portraits of locals in both booming cities and dusty, dwindling towns along the Yellowstone River, illustrate the history and controversies surrounding this enigmatic watershed leading to questions about its future. Connect with colorful characters, get lost in the hypnotic cast of a fly rod, and experience silhouetted moments of fireside stories on this heartfelt river adventure.
From the Gateway to Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana to the confluence of the Missouri River at historic Fort Buford, North Dakota, two boats drifted north on the freestone waters of the Yellowstone River. Led by fly fishing guide and 4th generation Montanan, Robert Hawkins, the small crew experiences a soul searching and inspirational journey down the longest free flowing river in the contiguous United States. The crew eases into life amongst the peaceful sounds of a massive water flow, flanked on each side by rugged mountains, plains full of big game, and an unending sky showcasing bald eagles and osprey.
Director Hunter Weeks (10 MPH, Ride the Divide) presents a thoughtful exploration of life on America’s great undammed river, the Yellowstone. With Montana’s captivating scenery at the forefront, Where the Yellowstone Goes takes a closer look at the impact people have on each other and on our environment.

With tuna season coming quickly...
ODFW is accepting public input to allow the ability to remove the heads of albacore while in the ocean. This is a good move as it allows the sportsfishing boats to carry fish with smaller space considerations and most likely get their fish cooled faster with less ice on board, thus resulting in better meat quality. If anyone is interested in writing a letter to ODFW, please do so as the time for input and deliberation is upon us!
Proposal reference is: 102 P and 131 P “Partial Cleaning of Albacore at Sea”
Please refer to this ODFW page http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/fishing/fishing_regs_public_process.asp
3rd bullet down, “May Public Meeting Packet” is this document: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/fishing/public_process/docs/2012_May_Meeting%20_Public_Process_Packet_4-18-2012_dt.pdf
You can read about the process in the first 6 pages. For the tuna cleaning proposal, go to the very last page of the document:
Pro. No. Category Marine Zone Proposals
102P and 131P
Page 100 – Processing of Fish at Sea
Allow partial cleaning “Carking” tuna at sea
Existing Rule: It is unlawful: for anglers fishing from a boat to mutilate fish so that size or species cannot be determined prior to landing…… This does not apply to herring, anchovy, smelt and sardine.
Proposed Rule: Marine Zone, regulation # 10. It is unlawful: for anglers fishing from a boat to mutilate fish so the size or species cannot be determined prior to landing; Except that albacore may be partially cleaned at sea. Partial cleaning means only the head and entrails may be removed; the clavicle (collar) must stay intact and the tail must stay intact.
When writing a letter, be sure to reference the two proposal numbers: 102 P and 131 P “Partial Cleaning of Albacore at Sea” (the two are essentially identical).
from page 13/14:
